Saturday, March 28, 2020 Camp Helen Monthly Bird Survey
We will meet @ the Camp Helen front gate at 6:00 am sharp. Although we typically finish birding about noon, you can spend as much or as little time as you like. We sometimes divide our group to cover the north side of the park as well as the coastal areas. We appreciate any amount of time given to help document our avian friends! 

Please RSVP [only necessary if you plan to come] to so we have an idea of how many participants to expect. Bring binoculars, scope [if you have one], water and snacks, hat and sunscreen. Looking forward to it!

Our April membership meeting has been cancelled.

Check back soon for latest updates.

Saturday, March 21- Bird walk at Panama City Beach Conservation Park,  100 Conservation Drive, Panama City Beach, FL 32413,  7:30AM.  BCAS members will guide participants to some of the many trails there. The wetland about 1 mile up from the parking area has proved to be great for various species of birds including the black-bellied whistling duck. Hairy woodpeckers are found along the trail too. Be sure to bring your camera and binoculars, but we will have some to loan. Bring snacks and something to drink along the trails. This is an easy walk but if we get off on side trails, there is a possibility they may be wet and uneven. Cancel if strong possibility of rain..
Saturday, March 14 - Laidlaw Perserve. Field TripMeet us at Porter Park at the south end of the Bailey Bridge in Lynn Haven at 7:15AM to leave at 7:30 for a morning of good birding on Audubon Florida's preserve near Vernon. Bring a sack lunch and drinks. A moderate amount of walking will be required. Trails may be damp. Bring binoculars and cameras. If you have hand clippers, they will come in handy. Rain gear is a good idea.
